Ardath Road Realignment La Jolla, CA Public Facilities Landscape Architecture
Project Description:

"The Ardath Road project included the reconfiguration of this heavily traveled intersection at North Torrey Pines Road to improve traffic safety and to create a gateway into La Jolla. Project alternatives were presented to the community at a public workshop. The selected project alternative included the relocation of the existing mature Torrey Pine trees that were boxed and stored for protection during the  two year construction period. These trees were replanted in a similar massing formation as they were originally located.

Entering into La Jolla, the stately Canary Island Palm trees aligning both sides of Ardath Road create a strong entry statement along with the  broadheaded canopy and accent trees. The understory plant material is low growing with a variety of colors and textures for visual interest."

Ballpark Infrastructure Improvements and Tailgate Park San Diego, CA Public Facilities
Project Description:

"The Ballpark Infrastructure Project was constructed in the heart of the developing ‘East Village’ in downtown San Diego. The project included selective improvements on existing and proposed streets surrounding Petco Park. KTU+A’s scope included design development of multiple streets and park areas based on the conceptual master plan; and construction documents and construction administration for the streetscapes from Harbor Drive to Library Circle at the crossing of 12th Avenue, Tailgate Park, temporary parking areas D1 and D2, and the connection to the Linear Park and the nearby trolley station. KTU+A’s main challenge was to maintain the design intent of the approved San Diego’s Ballpark Neighborhood Streetscape Master Plan (November 1999) and the changes agreed to by the multiple stakeholders. The coordination with multiple stakeholders was of the utmost importance in this process. Ensuring that the City of San Diego, the Padres’ organization, Centre City Development Corporation, Environmental Health Coalition, East Village, private developers, and other stakeholders concerns and standards were incorporated in the construction documents was a driving force on the project.

KTU+A provided a full scope of landscape architectural services for Tailgate Park, an important pedestrian connection to Petco Park.  The urban design aspects respond to the major growth the area is experiencing now, and will see in the future. The site is encompassed by a trellis system, including a major trellis portal through which Park users access routes to the stadium. A series of formal gardens enhance use of the parking lot where users enjoy the “tailgate” experience of causal BBQ’s and get-togethers.
